Research interests

I lead the Climate Dynamics Lab at the University of St Andrews. Our research addresses questions in:

  • atmospheric and climate dynamics
  • monsoons
  • land-climate interactions
  • the water cycle
  • past & future climate change

Recently we have been working to understand how clouds and water vapour influence monsoons, the dynamics of the intertropical convergence zone and why continents and oceans respond very differently to climate change.
